It is recommended to open new directory of your new project. Transfer your data files to that directory save your work (e.g. database, grids, maps etc.) their. It is also recommended to make backup for that directory each time you carry out analysis and modeling within your project to avoid loss of your work.

For example, the headers, the text separation and the data type (e.g. numbers, date etc)After defining the data in the file you may save this definitions into template files, if you have other files with similar formats. For subsequent file readings you use the template option instead of wizard.

Working with Array channelsArray channel are usually used when importing Resistivity, Seismic, GPR etc.X and Y here represent the location of observationOr modeling points at the earths surface. The Z channelCannot be a single value. Thats why we adopt array channelsIn place of ordinary single values ones.

Sample database with array channel

How to import array channel using ASCII import option?

Well, this can be done in the definition of data format using the wizard as in the following example.
